Hello

I am very interested in using Stata to perform a hypothesis test to compare two values, rho_1 and rho_2, say, of Spearman's rho. There is a dependency between the values as one of the variables used to obtain rho_1 was also used to obtain rho_2. Has anyone identified a way of achieving the above in Stata? I have observed from a previous post that some related discussion took place many years ago but I would keen to find out if there has been progress in developing a module in relation to the above need or if there is existing code that a list user would be kindly willing to share for the same purpose.

Very many thanks

Best wishes

Margaret
